Infant bicycle seats recalled

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in conjunction with Todson, Inc. have announced a voluntary recall of 40,000 Topeak Babyseat II bicycle carrier seats. According to the recall, consumers who purchased the infant/baby bicycle carriers should stop using them immediately due to the risk of amputation caused by the seats.

The CPSC stated in the announcement that a child could place his/her fingers in the opening at the grab bar's hinge mechanism. When the grab bar is lifted to remove the child from the seat, the child's fingertips can be caught in the hinge mechanism, posing a laceration and fingertip amputation hazard to the child. Two reports of incidents, including near amputations that resulted in stitches and a crushed finger, have been received.

The recall involves Topeak Babyseat II bicycle carrier seats with model numbers TCS2100, TCS2101 and TCS2102. The model numbers can be found on the product's packaging. The seats are sold in three styles: Babyseat, Babyseat with disc brake compatible rack and Babyseat with non-disc brack compatible rack.

The seats were sold at J&B Imports, REI, Action and Hawley, independent bicycle dealers, distributors and other stores nationwide and online at from January 2009 through April 2012.

Todson Inc. is making free retrofit kits available that make the seats safe. Consumers should stop using the seats and contact Todson at (800) 250-3068 or for a free retrofit kit.
